My dear friend Margot, wrote to me asking if there was a correlation between the type of resistance and the manifestation of physical ailments in the human body from an Abraham perspective. I thought I might share my thoughts on this subject with Abe’s followers.
Abraham says that the first place any sort of resistance shows up is in the form of physical discomfort, because you feel emotion in your body.
For example, when you feel happy you feel your heart swell, when you feel unhappy you feel your heart sink – many can feel a tight knot in their stomach, or nausea – all of these are signs of resistance. I recently posted a video in which Abraham talks about migranes as being a manifestation of resistance that does not allow the flow of fast moving energy. Basically, the stronger the asking for something the faster energy is flowing to you (what Abraham refers to as momentum). If you have a blockage to allowing the flow of this fast moving energy, then it manifests as a physical ailment. When you don’t take heed and clear up the energy, it can result in the creation of a chronic illness, or a perpetual discomfort such as an allergy. Resistance is usually a belief (or practiced thought) that causes you to think that what you are asking for is unattainable. It doesn’t matter if this unattainable object is big or small – what matters is how much attention you are giving to it.
For example, if you were irritated by the neighbours dog barking, and you thought about it often, complained about it to everyone you met, blogged about it etc, you would be keeping it active in your vibration. What are you asking for? Well, you are really asking for the opposite – you are wanting neighbours without a dog, or a dog that does not bark as much – really you are asking for peace and quiet. But instead of thinking about the peace and quiet that you like so much you are thinking about the irritation that the dog is causing. Not only does your attention to the barking make the barking worse, your focus on it creates resistance, and this resistance can lead to physical discomfort. And that is why, when a physical ailment does manifest a lot of times, people cannot tell how it came about, because they feel that it has to be something huge that creates a physical ailment, and they do not link the little everyday things that may be creating resistance inside them to the manifestation of a sickness.
Louise Hay has written a book cataloguing the vibration reason for discord with a physical condition, so lack of money leads to pain in the lower back etc. However, from the Abraham perspective, I feel that if you look for proof you will find it, so I do not think that a particular sort of resistance leads to a particular sort of physical body manifestation. I believe (and you don't have to agree with me) that a physical ailment represents the crack of least resistance - an opportunity for your inner being to communicate to you that something is wrong and you are not aligned, because they tried to communicate to you with emotion, but you were not listening. So whatever part of your body is a weak spot for you, or is an area that is vulnerable because of your belief system will become the path that your inner being or Source uses in order to catch your attention.
For example, if you are one who believes that heart disease (or any other condition) is genetic, then that belief represents a potential weak spot in your system. If you harbor resistance often and do not heed the negative emotion that you feel – brush it away as unimportant or shake it off as a sign of weakness or immaturity, then an accumulation of events and situations that add to the blockage can result in a heart attack for you. I have been witness to the journey of someone I know, whose mother died of cancer, and she believed that cancer was hereditary, eventually she was diagnosed with it. Her resistance was on the subject of money, but it showed up as cancer because of her belief system. For another person I know, the cancer came as a result of her habit of criticism with respect to all her relationships.
This train of thought leads me to remembering my mother. My mother transitioned in May 2006 at the age of 60, after a prolonged illness.
